Wow, have we had a grand three months! I didn't count the states and provinces, but it added up to 11531 miles. Knowing what I know now, would I do it again? YES!!! In two years if I can talk Helen into it. There will be some changes next time, more time on the Kenai Peninsula. Halibut fishing from Homer or Valdez. Time my stay for the lowest tides, for clamming and also for the best fishing , for salmon. We will plan to see places on the way, as we did this time, but Glacier National Park will not be one of the destinations.
Now the fun begins as we transition into life at home. Being the super sensitive husband that I am, I took steps to make Helen's work easier. A few days ago I bought her a new lawn mower. She doesn't like to use the riding lawn tractor and has been using an old push lawnmower. Last year it was so hard to start that I'd have to give it a shot of starting ether to get it going. The new one starts easy on the first pull, but Helen doesn't even have to pull the start cord as it is electric start. And, it's self propelled. I know, I know, I'm too good to her, but she deserves the best.
Before vacation her car developed a bad coolant leak that made it undrivable and that is the project I'm working on now. I know I whined about the wet, cold Alaska coastal weather, but it's really hot and humid and I'd like some of that Alberta, Canada weather right now. OK, I've been avoiding the garage by writing this blog, but now it's time to get back to work.
